Oi Batuqueiros! Summer Solstice Update

17 06 2009

The Solstice Parade is just around the corner and Capoeira Batuque-Santa Barbara is just about ready to go! We’ve got practice at the studio on Wednesday at 9:30 PM after class, and one last practice on Thursday (contact Mariano for practice time). This weekend promises to be an amazing event, with our Capoeira Encounter on Friday and the Parade on Saturday.

Just because we haven’t made many posts lately, and this video has a lot of the flavor that Capoeira Batuque is trying to bring to Santa Barbara. Enjoy.

OUR MISSION:
Let’s kick off this summer with an experience of a lifetime. Like in Brazil, the Carnaval is a day of coming together and being with family and friends to celebrate the joy of life. From children to grandparents, this even is for everyone! Come experience the tradition that has been celebrated for decades in Brazil!

The Solstice Parade will be taking place on Saturday, June 20th, 2009. For 2 rehearsals and the costume to participate in the parade the cost is going to be $60.00 for adults and $35.00 for children. We are going to have a group of over 40 drummers coming to inspire some dancing and to fill the street with Bahian spirit!

We are going to have several guests, including the world renowned percussionist Mestre Amen Santo, professional dancers from Bahia, Prakantar, and Mariano’s Batucada School. It is our mission to bring the Axé of Bahia to the streets of Santa Barbara.
